Love your opinions.
The irony is when the TX200 first came out the stroke length was pretty near ideal for a 12 ft.lbs rifle and gave a pretty good firing cycle.

When the Mk3 version was released they chose to use a longer stroke which in export rifles gives more power. On the UK version the downside is it needs a weaker spring so the action feels somewhat sluggish - essentially they ballsed up a good design.
